While Trump concedes that the housing market is still weak, he states that he thinks things are about to turn a corner. Trump said that what is most troublesome to him right now is that people are still pretty shy about investing in America, and is what he calls the "saddest part" of all concerning the current economic situation in the country.
Since the American economy is driven so much on oil, Trump admits that there are better investments that you can make by looking abroad.
According to the real estate mogul, his properties in Palm Beach and Manhattan are doing well but other than that things just aren't too hot these days. If you go outside of Manhattan, Trump stated that he could not "think of a community that's doing well".
So what advice does the real estate genius have to offer for Americans? Actually its pretty positive. Trump states that things are getting ready to get better, and that properties he would not buy a couple years ago are becoming investments that he would make at this time.
